Following reports of shots being fired at a house in the Parkmore area of Craigavon, Upper Bann Jonathan Buckley MLA said:
“This is an irresponsible act, carried out with complete disregard for life or the welfare of the local community. It beggars belief that so shortly after the death of Lyra McKee, caused by the careless firing of rounds in a crowd, that we have someone firing shots towards a house and a car in a residential area in broad daylight.
I would say very clearly to those responsible that regardless which banner they claim to act under, what cause they claim or who they were targeting there is no justification for this action. The people of Craigavon do not want guns on the streets.
I would appeal to anyone with information on the shooting to contact the PSNI, before someone loses their life.”
